This week in Tarot 4 Tyson…
- The Past – Temperance
- The Present – The Hanged Man
- The Future – The Hermit
- The Outcome- The Sun
My apologies on not doing a spread last week Dr. Tyson. Life was hectic. However, not as hectic as yours judging from what we have here! Holy Shit! What a combination of cards! The cosmos is certainly grabbing you by the proverbial meteors, if you know what I mean? Here we have four of the major arcana cards. Ironically enough they are even my four personal favorites, well aside from the rest of them. *wink* But what a group it is despite my bad humor.
In the beginning, we have Temperance weighing the options of life. Which tells me that you recently had to make some important decisions or perhaps the Universe was making them for you? Anywho, your world is now turned upside down (2) as a result. – Yikes! How’s the view? LOL – For some, The Hanged Man card means you’re fucked. However, I prefer to go with one of these three understandings:
- The Hanged Man means a change of direction. A 180 degree turn in a sense.
- A surrendering to the Will of the cosmos.
- Or redemption through sacrifice.
In your case, being an agnostic, 1 or 3 is probably more accurate since I doubt you believe in the Will of the cosmos or even think that the Big Bang (not the television show) somehow has an impact on your life at the moment. However, I suppose if I had enough time and knowledge I could explain how the present moment of your life has in someway been directly effected by The Big Bang, but I digress.
Thankfully for you, as you hang, the blood rushes your head, which not only causes concern, but it also helps you find a sense of enlightenment (3) that leads to a future sense of happiness (4). Go you! And being an astrophysicist, I bet that you’re glad that we can at least close this week’s reading with The Sun card. Right? Enjoy the Sun while you can. Cheers Dr. Tyson!
